There were many periods of excellent passing, dribbling and tackling, but unfortunately for the hosts they were unable to find an equaliser.

The game ended 2-1 to Teigrod Tywi, but Newcastle Emlyn's players are to be congratulated on yet another impressive performance.

The young players have developed well in such a short space of time, and their dedication, drive, and passion for the sport were evident throughout.

Siwan, Emlyn's young goalkeeper, deserves a special mention for her fearless display in goal, and for making a number of crucial saves.

Although the result did not go their way on the day, Emlyn's young squad showed great potential and real promise for the future.
